Divergence to drive dollar in 2017

Fiscal expansion and monetary policy tightening are likely to drive up the dollar in 2017

Going up: the diverging fiscal and monetary policies between the US and developed economies will favour a stronger dollar in 2017

The euro could plunge below parity against the dollar by the end of 2017 if market expectations for a strong year for the greenback prove to be on the money and the fiscal expansion project slated for 2017 combined with a hawkish Federal Reserve conspire to boost the currency.

With Donald Trump set to move into the White House at the end of the month, market participants are bracing for a shift in fiscal policy which could see some $1 trillion spent on infrastructure projects in the US.
